[Bioperl-l] SeqIO: input from memory not file

I'm just getting into bioperl and have found a limitation which I
haven't been able navigate around.

I would like to create a series of SeqIO:Seq objects directly from an
array of sequence references.  The constructors for SeqIO:Seq only allow
new objects to be made from files, filehandles or STDIN.

I am able to make a PrimarySeq object directly from memory, but I can't
see how to convert a PrimarySeq into a SeqIO:Seq.

Am I just missing something?  Or should I just write a temporary file and
slurp it in with SeqIO:Seq?

Thanks for your feedback,
